after that, jim merrill. first, a news update from c-span radio. >> more on new hampshire this out. emily friedman reports that mitt romney will hold his final campaign rally in new hampshire, the very state in which he launched his bid for the white house 16 months ago. the victory rally will be held in manchester monday night. kid rock will be the special entertainer. as for president obama, political playbook reports "one of the most rebidding national events of the year" -- rivetting national events of the year" happens today when president obama will tour new jersey. he glanced around news time -- in time. an update in the aftermath of the storm. reporting hurricane city has killed the b-1 people along the atlantic coast, and over 8 million have lost power. mayor bloomberg said it could take four or five days before the subway, which suffered the worst damage in the 108-year history is running again. all 10 of the tunnels were flooded. consolidated edison said it could take a week to restore power outages to the outer boroughs. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span
other people worry about their own country. we have not problems in this country. >> jim, did you have anything to say? >> yes, i do have one question i can ask, it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> yes. >> okay, let's do something related to military and foreign policy and that is the issue of military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it come
sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
know, it depends on the scientists. the leading edge scientists like jim hanson, kevin trenberth jim mccarthy, the ones that i think are right out at the cutting edge have been saying this. but you're quite right that many scientists have been very cautious and science has a cautious culture. you could almost say a conservative culture. their peer review process discourages them from even thinking about going out on a limb. and so they -- they are inherently cautious and conservative. but the evidence is now so overwhelming. you know, in the last ten years you showed some of the statistics but there there's an analysis of the extreme hot temperatures on the surface of the earth. they're now 100 times more common than they were just 30 years ago. and it is these extremely hot temperatures that are responsible for the increased evaporation, the increased water vapor in the air the increased drought. and remember this is hardly the only climate related disaster that we've had this year. 65% of the united state
cary and the scenic designic, donna eastman, as well as the lighting designer jim ingles developed this idea of a turn table which would turn and allow the audience to see primary locations but see beyond that through the set secondary and tertiary types of scenes as opposed to being very boxy. so in the writing of the piece, all of this is taken into consideration while it was being developed, how we were going to stage it. over that period of 3 1/2 to 4 years, the piece got tighter, stronger, we worked with a variety of actors that came and went which in this particular case was very important because the material deals with people from a lot of different backgrounds and my own background is japanese american, there are two cake ters who are japanese american, three, rather, but there are african american characters, there's a russian jew by way of yokohama and i don't necessarily have those backgrounds. so in the workshop process, what it allows me to do to work with actors, particularly some of the african american characters, i can work with them to make sure the characters i
democrats call this a flat out lie, and we did a little fact checking on both. jim angle live in washington with the facts. hey, jim. >> reporter: hello, megyn. jeep production in ohio has turned into one of the nastyist and perhaps misinformed debates of the season. back in late october bloomberg ran a store row saying that fiat the owner of chrysler plans to return jeep output to china and may eventually make all of its mod tphels that country according to the head of both automakers operations in the region. now governor romney mentioned that story in a speech later in ohio, but later learned it was incorrect. democrats and bailed out automakers rushed to say that jeep was not going to take jobs from ohio, but rather just open up a production line in china, which a later romney ad accurately repeated. listen. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> reporter: but democrats cried foul and even fact checkers said while it was technically accurate, it was misleading. t
, jim bunn who is involved in media had a vision and the matthew freeman project again. he dedicated much time and energy to produce a short film that launched the project on memorial day 2010. since then, with the help of so many volunteers, he can't name them all, the project has spent over seven tons of school supplies to soldiers are buried for humanitarian efforts in afghanistan. matthew small town of richmond hill, now a city of savanna and our great army bases at fort stewart and hunter army airfield in savanna air guard to help me heal by supporting the matthew freeman project under it all veterans day 5-k run for peace. last night i dedicated a memorial in our town, the captain matthew freeman project proudly announced a new scholarship we will be starting for the siblings of the fall and in combat. these are the forgotten mourners to often sacrifice, on their education to comfort family or deal with their own grief. after 11 years of work, very few people know about the families. these are parents, siblings, thousands of children to survive the death of their loved ones. as
the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic opponent jim graves. her district has an 8% republican registration edge but still she only leads graves by 6 points. florida congressman allen west, he's raised $17 million compared to the $3.5 million of his democratic opponent patrick murphy. but polls show murphy leading west 48% to 47%. and, of course, we just cannot forget illinois congressman joe walsh -- perhaps the craziest of them all. he's answering a question about women's reproductive rights. take a listen. >> if a woman's life is at issue, would you say she was allowed to have a abortion? >> let me say there's no sun exception. with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance. this is an issue that opponents of life throw out there to make us look unreasonable. >> jennifer: actually, congressman, i think you're doing a pretty good job of looking unreasonable on your own. fortunately, voters in walsh's district agree because the latest polls have him trailin
're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president has forgotten his mandate to be a uniter in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people sho
fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic number is 270 electoral college votes to win the big prize. according to the web site, there are now 11 battleground states and statistically, 32 possibilities for up for grabs it states that could produce a 269 vote electoral college tight end. based on this site's simulated polls, the mathematical probability of a tie increasing almost fourfold in recent weeks. it runs the various scenarios of what happens if it goes to the u.s. house of representatives. this is a scenario where mitt romney and joe biden coul
civil rights bill. we remember him today as one of the last of the jim crow demagogue. he was. he was that. he was one of the last. but when we forget about strofm he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservative. what do i mean by that? what is that? the sun belt it's one of the big stories that is the flow of jobs and resource and population from the states of the northeast and the midwest to the south and the southwest. in the older post world war ii people. they recruiting industries. they were passing right to work laws. receiving lots of fundings from the federal government to build military at the time when the united states was involved in the cold war against the soviet union. so states like mississippi but states like georgia and texas and florida and southern california and arizona and north carolina are being transformed in the postworld war two period by the historic shift as the period of the sun belt dominance. if you think about every president elected from 1963 comes from state of the sun belt. lyndon johnson from texas and richard nixon from california.
angles. we have jim cantor e, he's hole up at the ritz bar down at battery park. we're journalists. >> mike seidel in hell's kitchen. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the weather. the beginning of sandy's effects are arriving up and down the mid-atlantic. winds are expected to reach 90 miles an hour, and already those living near the water have been forced evacuate. today it's expected to hook west and take aim at the northeast coast, leaving tens of millions of people just hours now to prepare. the entire new york city transit system is shut down. schools are closed along with those in baltimore, boston and washington, d.c. meteorologist bill karins is here with the very latest on the hurricane. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule. nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never forge
president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.

went through slavery and went through jim crow, i do not want to hear victims bullying the rest of america. this is what has happened. whether it's the jersey girls or the spokesman for the disabled, it's not the disabled, it's the self-appointed spokesman word police, the feminists on this word or that word, the gays on oh, you can't say that's so gay now. >> you know that it would get you into serious trouble -- >> no, i would never use it. >> you know it's deeply offensive. >> you are doing, you're so upset what sununu did to colin powell. you're trying to read my mind. no, you're wrong. i wouldn't use the "n" word because it's a curse word. >> will you continue using the retard word? >> yes. of course. i've done it since that tweet. >> disabled people -- >> i'm sure they were following my twitter feed. this has nothing to do with disabled people. it was about the president. they have injected themselves into a tweet they have nothing to do with. i would think maybe biden should be upset by me calling the president a retard but not an actually disabled person. >> let's take a
in the eastern and southeastern parts of pennsylvania. on the fallout from jim thorpe pennsylvania. caller: good morning. how are you doing yo? i have more of a comment. the lady was talking about redistricting and also the voter ideologue. with the republican party, what they did it to the libertarian and the constitution party, the republican party is not a choice on the ballot. with the voter i.d. law, all they want to do is disenfranchise the voter. okay? the republican party but the libertarian party through hell, to be honest with you. just to get 1% of the boat off the ballot. -- of the vote off. the libertarian party never got more than 1% of the votes nationally and i think it's ridiculous. i have volunteered for the libertarian party. they were arguing over signatures. what a waste of time and taxpayers' money because that had to all go in to the courts. host: terry madonna, third parties and the pennsylvania ballot. guest: gary johnson will be on the ballot house will -- as will jill stein of the green party. pennsylvania can write someone in. we will essentially have four two choices
the republican team, so we got to be sure did jim it is also recollected. he is doing a great job in washington. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obam
today is one of the last of the jim crow demagogues and he was. he was not. but we forgot is that he was also one of the first of the sun belt conservatives. what i mean by that? as a sun belt, it's one of the major stories in the history of 20th century american politics. that is the flow of jobs, industry, resources and population from the states of the northeast and midwest, to the south and southwest in the post-world war ii period. southern states were recruiting industries. they were passing right to work laws. they were receiving from you and from the federal government to build military installations that attend the united states was involved in the cold war against the soviet union. states like mississippi, georgia, texas and southern california and arizona and north carolina are all transformed in the post-world war ii period by this historic shift in population and political influence. just think about it. the latest period from 1964 to 2008 could be thought of this kind of the period of sun belt dominance in american presidential history. you think about every president e
with it but they did. >> the question -- >> karl rove. and jim i guess. >> with the national association of independent colleges and universities. [inaudible] i want to be mindful that it's national policy -- a lot of students have access to look through a window. many of them went to school and private colleges and universities. do the best josh of getting the students through. those who graduate for four years is for sale. so -- what's the bester investment? >> if i had had my drutsdzers i would be spending 10% on higher education. in my group i think history tells us that's the level in which the best performing economying in the world typically -- >> where are we now? >> we're now about 8. we used to bt 10. we're now about . korea the single most successful economy of the last 50 years is at ten and has been at ten since it was an incredibly poor country. and so to me that's what i would do. and so all i'm saying is we have -- i would start with the public system. i think that's what government should do. and but in my view, i would also provide assistance to very income dependent assistance to pri
to respond. mr. casey you go first. casey: jim, thanks. if the supreme court were to make that decision would be a radical departure from where we've been over the generation. it would be a step in the wrong direction. we still have a way to go to make sure that the kind of discrimination which was in place for many generations is rectified that in justice is dealt with completely. we can have a big debate over how to do that but i don't think that we should take a radical departure from where we've been. and i hope, i hope that our supreme court wouldn't make a decision that could be based upon the ideology rather than what is best for the country to make sure that we are right on going wrong. >> moderator: mr. smith? smith: jim, when you ask that question, why was thinking i even with the great doctor, martin luther king, said in that speech of his that we should be judged not by the color of our skin that the content of our character. and i believe that we should try to end discrimination and bigotry wherever we find that. if we overturn that i don't think the federal government should be
good that you're you have a good predecessor there. i had jim kelly who had done a lot of work to set things up. and to get through a very tough time, and the other thing is as in the state department, you're not working alone. you are working with the national security counsel staff. i have talented people, mike green here in the audience worked with him until he was replaced by dennis wild. i was i felt we were ease coned in a good team. as for the challenges, i worked in the job in the second bush administration, and basically the challenge i think is always the amount of bandwidth in washington. if you take issues for being important and being urgent, it seems that the u gent always beats out the important. so maybe dating back to a few years before when ambassador lord had the position, i think everyone understand east asia definitely important. but i was getting constantly trump bid the fact that, you know, we had a double header going in afghanistan and iraq, and quite understandably we had president who will be to be immersed in the issues. and often and one of the challenges
are pretty good that you got a pretty good predecessor there, and i have jim kelly who have done a lot of work to kind of set some things up. and to get to a very, very tough time. and the other thing is that, in the state department you're not working alone. you're working with the national security council staff. so i had very talented people. mike green here in the audience worked with him until he was replaced by dennis wilde. so i must say, i felt that we're really discussed in a very good team but as for the challenges, i worked in the job for the second bush administration. and basically the challenge i think his oath the amount of bandwidth in washington. and if you take issues for being important and being urgent, it seems to be urgent always beats out the important. so maybe dating back a few years before when ambassador lord had the position, i think everyone understood east asia, definitely important, but i was getting constantly trump by the fact that we had double-header going in afghanistan and in iraq, and quite understandably we have a president who had to be immersed
of new hampshire with jim merrill.'first, a news update from c-span radio. if i could just begin with some of this distance about new hampshire or electoral votes. president obama won by 9%. abc news said that he did not just eek out a win, he dominated. he bested mccain by 54%-44%. given the economy is not as weak as in other states and the margin by which he won, how was the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: let me make it clear, mitt romney will win next week. we have seen unemployment rise through the country as well as elsewhere, skyrocketing federal spending, government programs out of control. i think that is why you see today, especially between president obama. i think the voters of this state, what you are correct, unemployment has not been as tough. but there is anxiety. that is why they're looking at mitt romney closely. he has a plan, he has a record of success, this president does not. host: the undeclared make up 40%. how was he trying to appeal to them and what is internal polling showing how many of those voters he could get on election da

in the state of ohio. so tune in to seize and then at 5:40 eastern time. we will go to jim next republican collar. go ahead, jim. >> caller: i highly disagree with reid on his that the benghazi affair is not the october surprise. i really believe if the debate could they knew all the facts of what happened there how could the president and secretary of state and secretary of defense said and watch what happened in real time if everybody understood that's what happened to me the story was a plan attached by al qaeda. >> guest: they were not watching in real time to realize i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual benghazi attack or anything around it. however there is reporting to be done. the full story as it were will be reported in the investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. so the republican controlled house of representatives by the way. so we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not it is the october surprise, i'm pretty sure it is not. i'm sure most voters are not paying attention to it. so we will see how this all p

: a question on twitter from jim writes -- guest: i'm sure autoworkers will love that but there is a thing called tariffs that make those cars pretty expensive. they look at the ability to serve a market more directly and more cheaply than over in china. you almost have to have the reverse argument. we want to build cars here and china wants to build them their. host: another call on the line. sheila is waiting. caller: hello? well, i'll tell you what. right now, i am so upset with the way the economy is going. i do not like how obama is not for coal. i do not like obamacare either because i am disabled and my husband is, too. he is 100% disabled as a veteran. i even asked my doctor about obamacare and he said it was going to be very bad for the patients and even for the doctor's. i am from a big military family. this thing on benghazi, it just really hit hard here. i am very upset because if that had been my son because he was in the military also i would be very upset. i am surprised that some of these families have not even come out more and spoken out about this situation. host: a coup
. and the ball park is kind of big, similar to at&t park f you're jim leland, how do you pitch pablo sandoval the next couple games? >> reporter: he's the best bad ball hitter in the world! >> that's true. >> reporter: he hit three homeruns and none of them were strikes. maybe it's right down the middle. i don't know. pablo, you know, it's incredible to think about it. he's got six homeruns total in the post season. he had just 12 all year! so he's, he's just one of those guys that you can't describe, you can't define, because he will hit anything that you throw at him and he manages to get the meat of the bat on it. so he, he's a weapon right now and he's never been hotter than he is right now. >> and another weapon i think right now also that people have been talking about is the giants' defense. i mean, just executing. you mentioned it earlier on mornings on 2. blanco had those big catches in game 1. game 2, at the plate to get prince fielder. giants keep playing defense like they are, you can't beat them, seems like, fred! >> reporter: well, they are not beating themselves. that's the thi
of new hampshire with the senior adviser to the romney campaign. jim merrill, joining us from new hampshire. if i can begin with statistics -- the unemployment rate is 5.7%. president obama won by 9%. abc news says this -- he did not just eke out a win, he dominated. he carried every county in the state, besting mccain by 10 points. given the economy is not as weak as it is in other states, the margin by which he won in 2008, how is the governor responding in the state of new hampshire? guest: first of all, let me make it clear -- mitt romney will win new hampshire. the statistics he cited are accurate, but these last four years have been difficult not only for the people of new hampshire, but for the nation. we have seen unemployment rise, skyrocketing spending, government programs out of control. what you see today, the voters of this date, what you are correct that the unemployment rate has not been as tough as some of the other parts of the country, there is anxiety here. that is why they're looking at mid romney closely. he has a plan and this president does not. host: look a

of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering and people are getting paychecks, not worrying about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's rendezvous with destiny. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative.
